Purple Expands U.S. Manufacturing with a New Facility in Georgia

07/27/2020
In support of growing consumer demand, Purple has signed a lease for an additional 520,000-square-foot manufacturing facility on the East Coast, adding hundreds of new jobs.

LEHI, Utah, July 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Purple Innovation, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRPL) ("Purple"), the leader in comfort innovation and the creator of the renowned Purple® Mattress, today announced the expansion of its U.S. manufacturing to the East Coast. Before the end of 2020, Purple will create hundreds of new jobs by opening a new plant in Henry County, Georgia.

"We are proud to be a U.S. manufacturer," said Joe Megibow, CEO of Purple. "During these challenging times, we feel especially proud that we are able to invest in significantly expanding our manufacturing and production capacity domestically, creating many new jobs in the process."

The decision to open Purple's third manufacturing plant – and first outside of Utah – in Henry County came after an extensive search process to find the right location and state partner in this new venture.

"We are thrilled that Purple Innovation selected Georgia for their first expansion," said Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Pat Wilson. "As a national leader in manufacturing and logistics, I'm confident that our state will continue to attract innovative, solutions-oriented companies that create quality jobs and fuel economic growth."

Purple is a leader in comfort product innovation and specializes in the development and production of products such as mattresses, pillows and seat cushions. Purple has a 30-year history of innovation and manufacturing of advanced cushioning materials through its two founders, Tony and Terry Pearce. Today, Purple has over 670,000 square feet of manufacturing space in Alpine and Grantsville, Utah, but is ready to expand its manufacturing capabilities and footprint across the United States to meet increasing consumer demand.

"It's a pleasure to welcome Purple as an all-American success story to the extensive list of advanced manufacturers using innovative technologies and skills to create in-demand products right here in Georgia," said Governor Kemp. "I look forward to seeing the opportunities that Purple creates for the hardworking Georgians in and around Henry County."
